Depression is a disease that occurs as a result of the deterioration of the chemical balance in the brain. For example, the loss of a loved one, job loss, or a chronic illness can lead to depression.

Along with these symptoms, time is also important. In order for a person to be diagnosed with depression, these symptoms must have persisted for at least two weeks. Although the incidence is high in women, depression can occur at any age, from childhood to old age.

Depression also occurs in old age. We can say, “It is almost as if he is waiting on the watch and looking for an opportunity”. Older people often have more than one disease. When depression is added to these, the health of the person deteriorates.

Despite being an important health problem, depression is rarely diagnosed in the elderly. The reason is that it is considered normal for the elderly to be dejected, joyless, unhappy and stagnant, and it is thought that their complaints are due to old age. Another reason is that “physical complaints” are at the forefront in elderly depression. Older people don’t usually talk about their mood. They don’t even answer when asked about their mood. They pass it off, waving their hands, as if to say, “Never mind.” Rather, they complain, “My eyes don’t see as much as before, my legs hurt, I get tired quickly, I’m not as vigorous as before, I’m not strong enough.” Because doctors focus more on physical symptoms, they ignore the diagnosis of depression.

If the person has the above-mentioned complaints, it will be beneficial for him and his environment to get support as soon as possible.

Depression is a disease. First of all, you need to know and accept this. It is not caused by any of your mistakes, flaws, shortcomings or sins. This disease is caused by disruption of brain chemistry. Sad events and stress are effective in this. Never blame or blame yourself for being depressed. This is not your fault. It’s nobody’s fault! People who are more perfectionist, meticulous, overly responsible, and overworked are more likely to be depressed.

So what should be done in this case? It’s good to be outdoors a lot; It is recommended to take walks in the morning, as sunlight is more beneficial, especially during walks before noon. Taking care not to be alone, calling and chatting with a friend who is good for you, having a coffee with each other if possible, discovering the things that are good for you have a preventive effect.

In the sessions of my interviews, I ask the clients: “What will do you good, what will make you happy?” People don’t know what makes them happy. They are so focused on unhappiness and hopelessness that they are not aware of what makes them happy. Because the mind is always focused on the negative. In short, dealing with whatever you are happy with, spending time with it will make you feel better.

Being depressed is not a sign of weakness, nor is it a weakness to seek help after being depressed. Asking for help will make you stronger. Getting help without wasting time will be beneficial to yourself and then to the people around you.

Don’t miss the beauties of life! I wish you healthy, happy and peaceful days…
